The Chesterfield Palm Beach

Palm Beach is well known for its distinctive interior style and has been inspiring designers for decades. The Florida town has been called home by renowned interior designers such as Iris Apfel and Jonathan Adler, and hasan original style that’s part-preppy, part-1960s, with a little bit Hollywood thrown in for good measure. Inspired by The Chesterfield Palm Beach these tips will help you bring a sprinkling of Palm Beach style into your own home.

A clean, dazzlingly white backdrop is the foundation of classic Palm Beach style. Bold silhouettes and eye-catching prints are thefocal points of this look, so it’s important to start with a blank (white) canvas. Furthermore, white walls or pieces of furniture help to create a light filled, spacious atmosphere– something that never goes out of style.

Antique Finds

Palm Beach is well known for its fantastic antiques, and the town’s most elegant interiors make good use of bygone treasures. Add an original twist to your decorating with a pair of antique side tables, a statement lamp or a collection of striking prints. For ultimate Palm Beach glamour, opt for mid-century pieces that hark back to the heyday of the resort town.

Bold hues and Playful Prints

Colour and prints are defining characteristics of Palm Beach’s chicest interiors, and it pays to be brave when recreating a similar style at home. Be inspired by a 1960s colour palette of turquoise, hot pink and lime green, and don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colour combinations. Coloured, printed cushions and patterned rugs are an easy way to add interest and splashes of cheerful colour.

Tropical Touches

its beachside location and year-round sunshine, it’s little wonder that classic Palm Beach style is influenced by exotic details. Shell motifs are popular and an easy way to add a beachy feel to any room, as are palm leaf prints and coral sculptures. For maximum impact, consider an original retro peacock chair.

Experiment with Texture

A destination where outdoor living seamlessly blends into indoor spaces, natural materials are a great way of conjuring up sunnier climbs at home. Accents of wicker, bamboo and rattan create a summery atmosphere and can also be painted, typically white or blue, for an elegant twist.
